Building the Community Team San Diego will build a Community Team to design and implement a CAHP System during the first 100 Day Project that launches on June 4 th and 5 th. Common Assessment Tool San Diego chose to use the VI-SPDAT for the first 100 Day Pilot and will evaluate performance to determine future use.

10 Mission & Goal OVERALL GOAL: By September 17th, 2014, we, the San Diego Community Design Team, will design and test a system that assesses all downtown homeless and effectively matches, houses, and retains 150 veterans and 100 chronic homeless individuals … 100-day goal is to build a sustainable, ongoing system that will END veteran and chronic homelessness in downtown 250 housing placements intended to demonstrate system is working – not the ultimate goal

11 Sub-Goal #1: Assess all Downtown Homeless Estimated 800 unsheltered downtown homeless Week of June 23-26 – HOT Team, Alpha, other providers and 145 Volunteers – Assessed homeless on downtown streets using VI-SPDAT Now assessed over 1200 unsheltered homeless on downtown streets using VI-SPDAT Will continue our outreach to newly homeless and people we missed

12 Sub-Goal #2: Housing Navigation Housing Navigators prepare clients for housing Approximately 20 FTE’s Housing Navigators – Volunteered by their agencies!!! – Prepare clients for housing through CAHP system Approximately 100 clients already assigned to Housing Navigators – Most vulnerable clients assigned to Navigators first – Based upon their VI-SPDAT assessments

13 Sub-Goal #3: Matching & Placement Identify and gather housing resources Likely resources for downtown 100-day pilot: – 40 Permanent Supportive Housing beds – 50 VASH vouchers for veterans – 100 Rapid Rehousing Beds – 100 SSVF beds for veterans Match clients to housing – Using community agreed priority rules – Most vulnerable clients matched first Client always has choice of housing

14 14 1.Use Data to Drive Results: Use data to measure system and program performance and inform resource allocation decisions 2.Leverage Mainstream Resources: Engage mainstream systems and integrate those resources— housing, job training, child care, health care, etc … 3.Be Frugal – Target Wisely: Provide the right intervention at the right time to the right individual or family through a coordinated assessment system Five Key Tactics

15 15 4.Be Smart – Use Evidence: Adopt Housing First practices to offer individuals and families experiencing homelessness immediate access to permanent affordable or supportive housing, without clinical prerequisites or other barriers 5.Expand the Pie Strategically: Use existing resources in smarter ways to help make clear case for new investments of Federal, State, local, and private sector resources to scale the practices and innovations that work Five Key Tactics
